Here is a great recipe for home made wraps that are 100% plastic free, delicious and easy to make.
They can be easily customized to your taste and being the creative type, for me, they are never the same but always delicious. Enjoy.
Find the following ingredients in your local grocer or even in your ginormous supermarket – they are all there and pretty much plastic free.
- A dollop of Oil – Olive is my favourite.
- 2 ½ cups of flour – bread flour or wholemeal flour adds a nicer texture.
- 1 cup of warm tap water
- A taste of spices, herbs and/or just some yummy salt – Dukkha covers all these bases plus home grown thyme, oregano, rosemary, garlic, basil etc
- Extra oil for frying – optional.
- Extra flour for rolling.
- In the bowl, pour a good dollop of oil directly onto the flour.
- Get your hands in there and rub the oil through the flour. This binds it and eliminates the need for yeast.
- Add salt and flavours to taste
- Pour in the warm water and mix loosely.
- Tip out the flour mix onto the table and add more flour if needed. Don’t make it too hard or its difficult to roll, but too wet and it will stick to the pin. .
- Kneed it until it forms a soft malleable roll then divide into 8 small balls.
In the meantime,… Heat a large flat pan to medium-hot
- Use a rolling pin to roll out your wraps. You will need to dust flour regularly to help them roll flat enough.
TIP – Best to roll one at a time as they cook otherwise they can all stick together if you store them uncooked on top of each other.
- Make sure the pan is not and hot – but not burning. Dollop some extra oil in the pan
and chuck in your wrap. I like to skim it on one
side then flip to make sure there is enough oil on both sides.
- Turn when the bubbles appear on the surface – this usually takes about 1-2 mins.
NOTES: The longer you leave the wraps in the pan the crunchier they go. This is good for snack bread with lemon & salt – YUM!
Once you have your 8 wraps. Eat some straight away and place the rest in the fridge or freezer for later.
Other ways to eat your home made PF wraps:

- As a snack. Good with lots of olive oil, salt and then squeeze fresh lemon or lime before cracking into bite size pieces.
